Joe Sacco has long been known and praised for his work in comics journalism, with such titles as Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde, and The Fixer garnering widespread acclaim in The New York Times, TIME magazine, NPR, and The Los Angeles Times Book Review. Now, Sacco is returning to his satirist and underground cartoonist roots with the upcoming title BUMF Vol. 1: I Buggered the Kaiser.

It's a double delight: the advance copies of our two new Peanuts gift books are here! These books are sure to make great holiday presents for everyone in the family.
In Waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we've collected all the best strips featuring Linus' fervent idolatry and proselytization of the Great Pumpkin — a mythic character believed to rise from the pumpkin patch every Halloween to dole out gifts to good boys and girls.
In Snoopy's Thanksgiving, Snoopy and his dearest friend Woodstock both approach the impending holiday with varying degrees of dread, disappointment, and expectation management.
Great Pumpkin and Snoopy's Thanksgiving are due out in August and September respectively. Check out their previews, and, planning ahead for the holidays, why not pre-order them now?
It is our great pleasure to reveal the final cover artwork for Tim Lane's upcoming book, The Lonesome Go, wherein he continues to explore the Great American Mythological Drama that he began with his first, award-winning book Abandoned Cars.
Haunting, rich, gritty, and filled with the familiar imagery, mythologies, and icons of middle America, The Lonesome Go is best described as a tapestry of loosely connected stories, tied together by the experience of wandering.
Ed Piskor's vivid retelling of the history of hip hop continues with the second volume of Hip Hop Family Tree, covering the years from 1981 through 1983. From the lovingly crafted cover to the impeccable storytelling and artwork, this book is a delight to hold in our hands.
Volume 2 takes us through such hits as Afrika Bambaataa's "Planet Rock" and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message," and introduces music powerhouses like NWA, The Beastie Boys, Ice T, and early Public Enemy.
In this first volume collecting Don Rosa's prolific and well-loved work, Scrooge McDuck is curating a museum exhibit to display his vast collections of riches and wonders, making the bold statement that he is "both the world's richest duck and the champion treasure hunter." This statement is pompously challenged by Scrooge's longtime rival Flintheart Glomgold — and thus begins a frenzied contest to find a rare, long-lost Incan treasure: the legendary gold stores of Manco Capac, the Son of the Sun!
There are few greater joys in life than being able to revisit the stories of one's childhood. Except, perhaps, getting to share them with others in a cute, fun-sized book!
Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts strips are a cornerstone of American 1950's-60's culture, and his beloved characters, including Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Linus, and Lucy remain household names to this day. In our latest pocket-sized Peanuts gift book, Waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we've collected those Halloween-themed strips revolving around Linus' unshakeable belief in, and proselytizing of, the Great Pumpkin — a mysterious figure who rises from pumpkin patches every Halloween to bring presents to good kids.

August just keeps looking better and better! Among the dizzyingly beautiful books we're excited to bring to you in two months is best-selling cartoonist Lucy Knisley's newest book, a travelogue documenting her trip throughout Europe in the fall of 2011.
An Age of License follows Lucy as she navigates new countries, new experiences, and new romance, all rendered in an often-whimsical, sometimes stream-of-consciousness style that perfectly captures her moments of introspection between the memories she captures on the road. This part narration, part sketchbook format takes us right into Lucy's thoughts and revelations.
